    ESPNís QBR stat puts Tebow ahead of Rodgers

    Can't remember who was bringing up ESPN's new QBR but I found this amusing:

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/10/10/espns-qbr-stat-puts-tebow-ahead-of-rodgers/

    Iíll unignore the Total QBR long enough to point out that I have found justification for ignoring it: Under the Total QBR,
    Tim Tebowperformed better on Sunday than Aaron Rodgers.
    Rodgers, whose Packers won at the Georgia Dome, completed 26 of 39 passes for 396 yards and two touchdowns. His Total QBR was 82.1.
    Tebow, whose Broncos lost at home to the Chargers, completed four of 10 passes for 79 yards and a touchdown. And he ran the ball six times for 38 yards and a touchdown. And his Total QBR was 83.2.

    So exactly where did he get those ESPN QB ratings?

    A quick check on ESPN & Rodgers was rated at 117. Tebow was at 101.7

    Don't have any idea. Don't shoot the messenger.

    It's a different stat. It's their stat. It's not Quarter Back Rating. It's Total Quarterback Rating. It incorporates more than traditional QB rating... apparently it's not inclusive enough. I'm not sure if it incorporates pressure or not, but what appears to be putting Tebow ahead is his rushing. Rodgers doesn't need to run because he can sling it like King David. They should calculate the rushing portion of it based on need to run, not failure to read and throw.

    All I know for sure is, Aaron Rodger is a hell of a lot better than Tim Tebow. Their games weren't comparable on Sunday. Comparing their QB performances is a lot like comparing a 9 year old playing chopsticks to Chopin.

    I think it would be good to wait until Tebow plays an entire game before his rating has any meaning. He only played like half of the 4th quarter.

    This QBR is a joke. Dilfer and his stupid ass came up with it and everyone on the boards over there hates it. It is seriously a joke. You get "clutch" points, which means that the more you play from behind the better you are. Man I hate the world right now.

    All I'm asking is where they post those stats. When you go to the ESPN stats pages for a player, they show the QBR & not what you call the TQBR.

    I was rolling yesterday when they were talking about that game and that it was gonna be a day for the championship team.

    Gonna be like a home game for Tebow.

    Silly Phins organization.
